Our government is subsidizing a national industry which routinely lies to women about the effects of birth control.

Planned Parenthood, pharmacies, pharmaceutical companies and “family planning” facilities receive hundreds of millions of our tax dollars yearly – yet they're endangering the lives of women and young girls for political gain.

Thousands of pro-lifers in 19 states, Italy, Australia and the Honduras will participate in Protest the Pill Day ‘09: The Pill Kills Women.  They will expose the tragic effects these chemicals have on women including heart disease, breast cancer and liver problems.

And they will demand an answer to a burning question too long ignored – Why is our government subsidizing a corrupt birth control industry that leaches off the women they endanger?

American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to death.  For more information or press inquiries, please contact Katie Walker at 540.659.4942.
